After much deliberation over which colour would be my next OPI purchase, Wooden Shoe Like to Know was one of them. I was actually delighted when the bottle arrived, it looked like a mushroomy milk chocolate colour with tiny bronze shimmering particle in it. Once it was on my nails it didn't disappoint.
The application was smooth, and after two coats it looked perfect. It also weared really well, i had it one for 4 or 5 days with it still looking relatively good.
I have been really pleased with this purchase, and would highly recommend.
This nail polish is very ugly and muddy in the bottle. Like a medium chocolate brown, leaning kinda pink, with a fugly shimmer in it. On the nails, however, it's very pretty; a darker chocolate brown which sometimes has a wooden look to it. The shimmer becomes very subtle and the color looks rather good against my fair, cool toned skin.
Application is easy and it's perfect in two coats. Actually, you could get away with one thick coat only. Drying time is decent.
I'm not exactly a brown nail polish fan, so I just wanted to have one in my stash, just in case I feel like wearing it, and I'm glad I picked "Wooden Shoe Like To Know?". I hope OPI doesn't discontinue it, as it's the best brown shade I've seen so far.
Sadly, I had to edit this review... I don't really like wearing top coat, so I usually choose nail polishes that are quite glossy on their on. Well, this one isn't. Without the top coat, it looks very flat and weird, and the shimmer makes this impression even worse. Besides, on the very first day I already got lots of tipwear and no matter how much I fixed them, they always came back.
It's still a lovely polish I'd recommend to anyone, though, as its problems can be easily fixed by applying a topcoat.
I have never been drawn to the brown nail polishes - until now. I first saw this on one of the nail blogs as a swatch and knew I had to have it. Bought it today (along with a number of other OPI polishes - my latest obsession - lol!). I have it on now and absolutely love it! It's the perfect shade of brown - not too dark. In certain light it looks like a cream, in other light, you can see the little gold micro shimmer in it which is very pretty. And in other light, it looks like there's chocolate on my fingertips. lol! I can see myself wearing this throughout the fall and winter months ahead...
omg, i just put this on and i LOVE it!! i've been looking for a brown polish that is "just right" and not too dark/harsh. this is it!
the best way i can describe this colour is milk chocolate that has subtle gold flecks that only certain light catches.
this colour looks great with my fair skin (NC15). i'm not sure how this would look on other skin tones, but give it a try. this colour is gorgreous.
goes opaque in 2 coats.
I'm not one for brown nail polish but I just had to buy this one! "Wooden Shoe Like to Know?" is from the OPI Holland Collection and is a soft milky chocolate colour with fine shimmer - somewhat reminds me of rich hot cocoa. It's beautiful and perfect for fall and winter. Like the other polishes from the collection, the formula is fantastic! The first coat always seems a bit iffy, streaking and balding in places but the second coat applies like butter. It's warm without beng too dark and shimmering without being too "in-your-face". Beautiful polish.
Yes, I would also prefer a slight increase in the micro-shimmer but, otherwise, this is the usual OPI perfection. Glides on, covers perfectly, gorgeous color. Lovely on warm toned skin. A great neutral.
I don't need to describe this again as it had been described well by other reviewers. I reallllly like it...yes, even for summer! The ONLY thing I would change would be for it to be a tad more shimmery flecks...They show up in the sun mainly...love it!
The most perfect chocolate shimmer polish its good enough to eat!!...It has a subtle gold shimmer running through it ...not too much to make it an old fashioned pearly polish ...but just enough to make it different from other chocolate polishes ...its not a 'flat' brown its very classy...I'll wear mine in autumn/winter when I wear my lovely autumnal coloured woolies and long skirts ..it will work very well and compliment them..
a really nice brown color, doesn't shimmer as much as I thought it would, though..Still I wuld use this color all year round(:
Gorgeous mushroom-chocolate-mauve with coppery/gold reflects that appear in direct sunlight.
Very modern creme neutral nail polish.
Looks chic on my short nails and beautiful with my warm skin tone.
Make sure to let each coat dry completely; otherwise, you will get brush drag.
Would definitely buy again.
